Black Peaks‘ debut album ‘Statues‘ is finally out next week (April 8th) but to keep you going until then, the band have released a brand new track from it. Check out ‘White Eyes‘ below.
Speaking about the album, Will Gardner explains, “I think we are a healthy mixture of excited and terrified at the same time. It’s our first album, we just want it to be the best it can be. It has been a long time coming, but we think it’s worth the wait. We have always written with as much contrast and shade as we possibly can, it’s just how we write I guess. There’s one rule that we have tried to apply: it needs to have darkness, it needs to have heaviness, but it also needs to be beautiful.”
“It’s a real rollercoaster of a ride, so it’s difficult to say what we want people to take away from the record,” he continues. “However, if it moves people to feel in any way excited, nostalgic, happy, or just interested, then we have succeeded in our goals.”
